Abstract—Implants are poised to revolutionize personalized healthcare by monitoring and actuating physiological functions. Such implants operate under challenging constraints of limited battery energy, heterogeneous tissue-dependent channel conditions and human-safety regulations.

Prof. Shyam Lal from the National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Mangalore, India, is visiting our Lab and teaching a part of the course of Satellite Data Analysis. Prof. Lal is a notable expert in image processing and is applying his expertise not only in the field of spaceborne remote sensing but also in various other fields including for example medical image analysis. Prof. Lal has also given a seminar on his research activities in the morning of Wednesday, 28th November 2018. His 15h in the Satellite Data Analysis course cover specific topics in image analysis and enhancement applied to multispectral satellite data.

Summary: Positioning capability represents one of the basic features of modern Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Although this objective may be pursued by using Global Navigation Satellite Systems, cheaper and simpler techniques are more suitable for low-power networks. In this letter, we present

ABSTRACT: Millimeter wave (mmWave) communication in the 60 GHz band requires large antenna arrays at both the transmit and receive terminals to achieve beamforming gains, in order to counteract the severe pathloss. Fully digital techniques are infeasible with large antenna arrays due to hardware constraints at such frequencies, while pure analog solutions have severe performance limitations. Hybrid analog/digital beamforming is a promising solution, especially when extended to a multi-user scenario.
